Not many people realise it, but there is more than one type of recliner chair. As recliner chairs can be used in quite a few different ways to help people sit more comfortably and get up more easily, many different types of them have been made.
One of the most specialist types of recliner chairs currently available is the bariatric riser recliner. For those who don’t know, bariatrics is a branch of medicine which aims to deal with the causes of obesity, as well as ways to prevent and treat it. Bariatrics includes everything from dieting and exercise to surgery, behavioural therapy and pharmacotherapy.
You can buy a number of different pieces of furniture and equipment from shops and online stores specialising in bariatric equipment. These are specially designed to make life easier and more comfortable for the user, helping them meet their needs at home, as well as reducing the risk of injury for any caregivers.
The purpose served by bariatric riser recliners is very specific. They are made to be stronger, wider and sturdier in construction, and they also have strong armrests. This reinforced frame allows them to support greater weights.
A couple of other useful features are on offer with bariatric riser recliners, in addition to supporting you properly when you sit down. Many have rise and recline functions, which can vastly improve how comfortable it is to use the chair and to get up out of it.
As well as assisting you into a standing position, and reclining to help you find a comfortable and relaxing sitting position, some bariatric riser recliners also have a massage function. This can work on the whole body, relieving pressure and tension in key areas and helping you to improve your comfort whilst using the chair to an even greater degree.
